[laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but what the poll has been doing in particular is looking more at what it was in 2008, which political pollsters will tell you, it will not be at that point. it needs to be somewhere near where the republicans were in 2008. host: the annual crystal ball contest from "the washington post." jim cramer, predicting that mitt romney will get 98 electoral votes, the president, 440? he is the only one predicting a landslide for the president. guest: he is the only one predicting that. i am a democratic partisan, i would love to see that, but i do not thin

let me tell you what we're doing in mow hoe is what mitt romney is going to do in washington and get this country back on track again. [applause] it's really faith ladies and gentlemen and boys and girls, and by the way i've never seen so many young people at campaign rallies. and i'll tell you what i think it's all about. we as americans recognize we have two paths to choose. we've seen what the last four years gives us and it gives us more government that's inefficient and doesn't work very well. it gives us the possibility of even higher taxes. and there's a lot of reasons i hate higher taxes, the biggest reason is i know where that money goes in that city and it's time to clean it up down there. the last thing we need is higher taxes and regulators. instead of embracing the people that give people opportunity for jobs, they pound on us, they pound on small business people and stunt our growth. but we have another choice here tonight. and that's why there is so many people here tonight. you know it's about that american dream. you know government is not the answer. government is t
and it will be determined whether the president has another four-year lease on the white house or whether mitt romney begin it is transition. the numbers tell the story from the polls this election is a dead heat. turn out will determine who wins and the fight for the battleground states continues. later tonight we'll have live coverage of the candidates in iowa and new hampshire. we did learn from the romney campaign two stops have been scheduled for tomorrow one in ohio. the president will p spend the night in chicago in his own home. he has no appearance ps for tomorrow before he travels for a victory or concession speech. we will have that as all of our coverage tomorrow. first from the campaigns some new web videos released earlier in the day. >> the romney campaign has put up an ad that is false. >> your campaign started running an ad in ohio this week which implies that jeep is shipping u.s. jobs to china when they're just expanding their operationes to china but they're not shipping u.s. jobsover seas. >> i don't like that particular ad. >> the g.m.s smokes man said this is not what is going on. >>
to the right mitt romney had to go to mail tell that nomination. one of the things people will say -- nail down that nomination. people say, what impact did the superpacs have tumbled -- have? had adelson not kick in the money for newt gingrich, he would have been out of the race a long time ago. if not for foster freeze, rick santorum would have been out of there. romney had to move to the right to nail down the nomination. it made it more difficult, more awkward for him to go back toward the center to win a general election. if you are going to say two issues -- one of them might not be fair. the automobile bailout, i do not know how much of that was political and conservatives not liking government interference and how much of it was a harvard business school, harvard law our school -- harvard law school thinking that that would have been a better long-term route for the auto companies that may not have been political, that you them go bankrupt. the other thing is the politicization. you cannot tell me that the mitt romney from 3 or four years ago would have had any intention to go as stride
christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call comes from frank in burke, virginia. caller: thank you to c-span. i want to talk about the balance in
the democratic campaign has painted the republican as romney ryan. i know you accused the congressman of not being able to work with others of the other party. as the independent who are you going to caucus with? >> i grew up as a liberal. i grew up in rhode island which means by default i'm a democrat. the rules of rhode island allow me to run as an independent. i don't agree with everything the democrats do. would i caucus more or less with the democrats? more. i'm a liberal. i don't agree with everything they do. republicans have good ideas, democrats have good ideas. sparse i'm concerned the only people i care about are voters. i don't have a corporate backer or take any campaign doe inflammation nations. there is a reason for that. i would caucus with the democrats. that doesn't mean i wouldn't shun the democrats if i felt they were out of line. i would go with the republicans where i saw the good ideas. >> would you vote for mr. bainer as speaker and if so the follow up question before you answer the first question is what issue have you identified where you could vote with the
should anybody believe that governor romney would be good at creating jobs what he was 48 in job guest: well, i'll take the question first. governor romney in the middle oh f a tough economy created almost 50,000 new jobs in massachusetts. let's remember. >> on "washington journal" tomorrow morning we'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need some
. because we feel very good about governor romney's prospects, we also feel pretty good about george allen's prospects. >> harry reid said it was a fantasy to think the democrats would work with iran if he is elected. if there romney is elected, do you think democrats will work with a romney administration? if the president is reelected, will there be a more bipartisan. ? spirit? >> however this comes out i hope we can get on with governing the country in doing the nation's business. we have some really big challenges. i do not think this is helpful or construction are what the american people want to hear. i do think if governor romney is elected president and the democrats were to hang onto the senate, that creates a dynamic that we're going to have to navigate to try to get some things done for the best interests of the american people. my hope is that both people would recognize that the challenges we face are big enough that we cannot afford to get bogged down. we need to give the president an opportunity to try a different direction. what we have been doing has not worked. if you loo
for the romney campaign in >> david mentioned in his opening remarks 47%. it was coincidental i think that president obama last 47% and you said that the 47% mr. romney was referring to was republicans. that was coins dental? >> what it demonstrated is a fundamental misunderstanding of the country he wanted to lead. that's what that statement showed. and a lot of those 47%. what was he saying in the statement? what he was saying is there is 47% of the country i got to write those people off because they don't pay federal income tax. and because they don't pay their a bunch of takers. you in this room, you're the makers, you're being victimized by the takers and there is nothing i can do about those takers so forget about it. i think it was a disaster. and a lot of the people in that 47% are in fact the base of the republican party. >> david. >> this is not because we're having a blue hand love in. if the republican party were to listen to half of what steve said in his opening comments they would rehabilitate themselves quickly. i think there is going to be a civil war between the vie
that undermining romney's business credentials. at that the strategy was smart at the time but the first debate it was almost too easy for him to look reasonable and he just shed that hold caricature. for a few weeks there, it really did it tumbled the race. that was the one real opening he had. >> i already talked about campaign 101 and it was never clear -- why romney and not obama? in terms of meeting to talk to people looking back to 2004 and president bush talking to hispanics, when our party talks to hispanics, it works. martinez, rubio, lots of examples. one person i have to say i have a bias towards is bobby jindal. he can articulate to conservatives and he has put them in practice, by partisanship, getting a thing is done. i do think there's a great future and a lot of real leaders in the republican party who can articulate conservative policies. >> we have a terrific second panel coming up in a few minutes. i do see some of our speakers here, but i want to ask if there were any standouts for you in terms of personalities or players in this race. i was very struck that cnn really found
campaign 2012, the romney rally in pennsylvania. the governor is up the microphone waiting to introduce the governor running about an hour behind. let's listen in. >> i believe we working with one of his colleagues, governor romney was in massachusetts and learned that the daughter of one of his co-workers was kidnapped. they shut the business down. they went down to manhattan in new york and started searching. they handed out leaflets and those leaflets led to her recovery from somebody that had her kidnapped and had her in chains. that was not done for the tv. that was done out of love of children. that is what we need in the white house. [cheers and applause] this is, without a doubt, a beautiful country. it is a country where we are at a decision point. are we going to continue to do what we have been doing for the last four years? are we going to continue to death double -- double the deficit of this country? are we going to continue to see more and more unemployment in the next 10 years? we have to make a change? are you with me in making this change? [crowd chanting
obama, mitt romney, writing in to "usa today," sharing their opinions. president obama says -- "do not give up, we have had a rise in jobs and a rebound in growth." governor romney says -- "we need a new beginning." looking at the headline of "the wall street journal," it gives us an idea of where the candidates were over the weekend. you can see them in these key battleground states, places like cleveland, ohio, and president obama in cincinnati, ohio, also making stops for mitt romney in new hampshire. president obama in places like florida and wisconsin. if it is a question of voting issues in florida, let's look at "the miami herald." election officials shut the doors to headquarters, angering voters, resuming the proceedings one hour later. the question here is on early voting in the state of florida. it was an attempt to allow more people to early vote, it devolved into chaos and confusion just days before the nation decide its next president. election officials -- host: so, questions there, in florida. let's cut to the phones and hear what you have to say. joe, the morning,
and figure out why things happened the way they did but it is time to put mitt romney in the rearview mirror and proceed. there is a long bench on the republican side, many others of home -- who will be there to be the candidate. we need a clear view of where we're going. in 2014 there is as bright a view of the senate takeover by republicans as any time in the last 30 or 40 years. the number of republican scifres up for election as opposed to the democrats after two more years of a, -- obama, if republicans can take back the senate, they will make the last two years of the obama administration immeasurable time for the president. those are few of the things we look forward -- those are a few of the things. we look forward to taking your questions. >> thank you. >> this is one of the examples -- can you give examples of how mitt romney could have complained and the regret -- [inaudible] i do not think there's any question he took all the right stance. that is not the argument he took all the right positions and we were all happy to spread those commitments around. the problem was not communi

c-span. first, mitt romney will campaign in englewood, colorado with his wife, ann romney. and then president obama and bill clinton will wrap up the day of campaigning in bristow, virginia. but first, this is this week's radio addresses. president obama talking about the countries response to hurricane sandy. then mitt romney talking about the upcoming election. >> this weekend, millions of our fellow americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey on wednesday with governor christie, and witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. it's heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm's way to bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. and as president, i promise them this -- your country will be there for you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i've been in constant contact with governor
george walker bush. mitt romney with 60% of the white vote in the country is defeated pretty resoundingly. in the 2004 bush campaign we received 44% of the latino vote. we were having discussions in the white house in 2005 that we were were able to get majority status with latino voters in the country. if you look at the election results you can really see the republican party throwing down the graphic in the country paying off. and so, when we look at it as a party and we look at the demographic changes in the country in the mountain west. we also give consideration that some of the fastest-growing latino populations came from north carolina and not necessarily the southwest border states and states in the rocky mountain west. we have now given up as republicans five u.s. senate seats in two elections because the nominees in those seats were unqualified to serve in the united states senate from an intellectual and knowledge level and from a social extremism level. their candidacies were rejected not just by swing voters, but by a lot of republican voters as well. if you look now at the
one win. he has spent maybe $170 million against barack obama and for mitt romney. he had a horrible record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the
coverage at 3:35 eastern. tonight live coverage of both obama and romney in their f inal rallies. president obama is wrapping up in des moines, iowa, while mitt romney will be in new hampshire. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern. a reminder to watch the results in presidential, house, senate, and governors races across the country. victory and concession speeches from candidates, plus your reaction to route the night, and it begins at 8:00 eastern tomorrow night on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org c- span.org. >> when you have the infrastructure, there are quality vulnerabilities to natural disasters. in terms of the fcc's engagement, the chairman spent the night at the agency. our public safety person to the state. we are working on firsthand with fema to make an overall assessment in terms of those initial numbers. of 25% of cell towers were disabled during this process. what the fcc does and will continue to do is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the ground and to more so used this information to see what we can do better going forward. gnon clybrun, tonight a
want you to vote. the republican candidates by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plans would hurt the economy and kill jobs. turns out the mouth was just as bad then as it is now. -- the math was just as bad then as it is now. america created 23 million new jobs. our deficit had turned into a surplus. florida, we know our ideas work. we also know their ideas do not. because we try their ideas, too. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies free rein to do whatever they please. you know what they got. we got falling incomes and record deficits. you have ideas that we tried and did not work, and ideas that we tried it did work. you would think there would be a pretty clear choice, but mitt romney is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he has tried as hard as he can to repackage these old ideas that did not work, and pretend there are new ideas and offering them up as a change. but here is the thing, florida, we know what changed looks like. what mitt romney is offering is not it. giving more power back to the biggest bang -- biggest banks is not change. a
up seats in the house. that is not the status quo. >> [inaudible] then governor romney in the popular vote and getting 10 million votes less than 2008. does he have a mandate [inaudible] >> i am not going to get into the george bush, social security type thing. i have things that we're obligated to do for the american people. one is to get our problems solved fiscally and maintain a strong relationship and something we have not talked about here, create jobs. we have cooperation from the republicans, we can treat a lot of jobs. let's just think about this. all the infrastructure have stopped us from doing it. i hope they do not do it again. teachers, firefighters, police officers. we had a piece of legislation on the floor that said these many people, public employees that have been laid off, bring the back end we have the surtax of people making more than $1 million year would have to pay a surtax of 0.3 of 1%. people are making more than a million dollars a year, the vast majority of them are happy. job creation is one of the easiest things we can do. we need help from the republica
, the brass to call it change. we know what change looks like. and what governor romney is selling ain't it. giving more powers to the biggest banks is not change. giving tax cuts to the wealthy is not change. refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies until after the election, that definitely is not change. ruling out compromise by pledging to rubber-stamp the two party folks in congress. that is not change it. changing the facts when it is convenient to your campaign, not change. i mean, that's old. that's the attitude in washington that needs to change. now, virginia, after four years as president, you know me. you know me. so when you're trying to sort through this argument about change, part of what you have to ask yourself is, who do you trust? when you are talking about the economy and policy that is so critical to our future, you've got to ask yourself, who do you trust? you may not agree with every decision i have made -- michele does not agree with every decision i have made. there may be times when you are frustrated at the pace of change. i am frustrated som

. host: i want to get your thoughts on that ad from the mitt romney campaign that says president obama sold chrysler to italians that are going to build jeeps in china. a lot of push back from the obama campaign. the ad was dismissed by our last guest. i want to get your thoughts. guest: chrysler has admitted they are going to open a plant in china. they are going to manufacture jeeps in italy they are going to ship to china. why are we not manufacturing them in ohio? i think that is the issue that mitt romney, governor romney, was attempting to promote. the fact of the matter is that we have a substantial loss of automobile manufacturing jobs in ohio between 2008 when the 2011. we have not recovered some of those jobs. some of those jobs, we have recovered. to say that chrysler is not going to be producing jeeps in china is incorrect, because they have admitted that they are going to open a plant in china. they are in the process of doing the right now. >> you think governor romney could have done a better job in how he presented that ad? it has gotten a lot of a pushcart. vice-presid
should say that yesterday mitt romney did can see florida. we do know obama well when those 29 votes. that gives him a total of 332 electoral votes. host: thank you for joining us. always informative. we are taking your calls this morning on what issues he wanted the president to address in his second term perry will go to the phones. sheila is on the democratic line from alabama. caller: good morning. i would like to see the economy get better. the second issue i have a problem with is the education system. those are the two things i would like to see get better. also, if i could i would like to make a comment. the people over at fox news and this glen beck character, i was looking at those people yesterday. they were doing a lot of name- calling yesterday. they said that the people who voted for obama were a bunch of idiots. i would just like to say that they are doing a lot of wining now. host: let's stick to looking forward for the next four years. how confident are you on the issues you brought up that the president will be able to get some traction? caller: i think it is going

of what mitt romney needed to do was to start off with the 22 states that mccain won with 180 electoral votes. then you say, ok. he is going to win indiana. that gets it to 191. probably the next easiest they will be north carolina. what will he have to do after that to get up to 270? we still have two states out, florida and virginia, which were going to be my next two states he would need to win. they are still undecided at this point. with obama slightly ahead in both of them. basically it looks like it stops. he would have needed to do florida and virginia and then he would need to get into colorado, iowa, new hampshire. even winning all of that he would be three short of 270. it was pretty clear going into election day that a whole lot had to happen right for romney to get over to 70. it did not happen. it seemed to peter out either after north carolina in that sequence or maybe even florida or virginia wants all the votes are counted, maybe one or theoretically both of them fall to him, but probably not. that is where it was. there was one. back around -- looking at the sequencing
has been on the books for a couple of years now. when the mitt romney was asked, well -- he was asked, would you sign the bill? [laughter] what i mean, he will have harder decisions than this. [cheers and applause] there is an answer to this question. and answer yes or no. when you are the decider in chief you cannot just shuffle along. you can't do that. barack obama decided that america could not afford to let the automobile industry die. he saved it. [cheers and applause] mitt romney opposed what he did. he has tied himself in so many nuts over this automobile deal,he could be hired as a chief contortionist. for cert do so led. -cuirque de soleil. he was against it. it was not just general motors and chrysler. there is a reason all the german and japanese companies that make companies were for the automobile restructuring. they knew if general motors quit buying parts, they were toast. it is another example of, we are all in this together. barack obama made the right decision. his opponent was wrong. [applause] in an unbelievable attempt to distract the voters of ohio where one in
romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right
" series. >> with just five days to go until election day, and romney called on ohioans to vote early for her husband. during a rally, she said he will not fail women and the american people. this is a half hour. >> thank you. i am so pleased to be here today. what a warm welcome. what a lovely group of people. we are into the final days. isn't this exciting? we are going in the right direction. we are so pleased to be here. i have had a love the opportunity to travel with and through the months now and i see and her summit things that will be is so lovely in a first lady. we are so lucky to have her, aren't we? the reason that i am here is not much different than the reasons from before. i care very deeply about my own family, obviously. once again, the mccain family has a son that is deployed. he is in the navy and he flies helicopters and he is indeed -- the reason i tell you that is because like any mother in this audience or any wife or any sister or and of someone who is serving, we want them safe. i want him home safely. with that said, i also want what america has always had a
the romney campaign was operated on at was nine. obama's theory about the campaign turned out to be correct and the battleground states fell his way. >> north carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. out.ida is still allowe this year is turned out to be irrelevant. iss? did the republicans m >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch up to the new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 7% of hispanics -- 70% of hispanics. young voters. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk
state university. tonight mitt romney and paul ryan will be joined by their wives on the campaign trail, in westchester, ohio. also joining them is condoleezza rice and senator john mccain. that is at 7:30 on c-span. the amount we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thrive. when we look at the uniqueness on the border different from the reform metered -- needed, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we have a work force problem because of our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. we have to provide a workforce that can move back and forth easily, and now we cannot do that because of the impediments that are there by not having an effective immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue. >> some of the issues have to do with what was raised here with regard to be near the border, seasonal work that comes on, and being susceptible to a national trend when it comes to the economy. we need to do things desperately yuma. yuma, one thing we have to avoid is the sequestration th
to be in a less taxes, less regulation and more freedom? [applause] i believe in mitt romney. i think he is the right candidate at in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work. people have given up looking for work. we need somebody in the white house who understands how jobs are created. it is not government that creates jobs. this individual to create jobs. when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i voted to strengthen our 34il8 tear. military [applause] a couple of things happen when i beat senator nelson. the secon
, and on the one hand this is not a huge surprise. it is not like a broad expectation was mitt romney was going to run away with the election and everything would change, but until there was no answer wall street was holding its breath and the initial reaction was to say that we are worried about uncertainty between now and the end of the year. host: scott wilson, what do you here in in terms of one of which were you hearing in terms of whether you get -- what are you let the bush era tax cuts expire? guest: the president said he is going to let those expire, and part of the discussion in the white house and capitol hill is what is the meaning of his election? what were voters saying? mitch mcconnell said this is not a mandate to continue the excesses' of your first term. john boehner seemed more open to the idea of allowing more revenue, the rate increases on fiscal cliff issue. i think the president, and i know his left wing, is certainly holding him to the pledge on the campaign trail that he will let the proper rate expire at the end of the year and intends to hold his own in arguing for th
together. another question was significant for barack obama and it hurt mitt romney. who was to blame for the current economic problems? they gave a choice, the president or george bush? 38% said president barack obama , 53% said george bush. this goes back to bill clinton. folks, it and i could not have solved this problem. it's all george bush's fault. i think the president and his team and the democratic party got a lot of mileage out of the bush years and out of what the public concluded was george bush's failings or shortcomings. you don't have to agree that he failed are had shortcomings, i am just telling you what the public thinks. that is what matters now. but i think the lesson coming out of this election -- nothing charlie is right, the lesson coming out of this is that the public now is inclined to say to the democrats and republicans need to do something to change their message, to change their reputation and image. i think generally, charlie is right with what he said about the republicans being extreme and too ideological. i think that is certainly true. it is also the
the race and put romney back with and range. obama was able to stabilize at the end. but romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. romney was able to walk over the threshold. in the end, he never addressed the demographic challenge. and the third debate he went back on some of the language. he talked about amnesty and deportation and basically ensured that number among hispanics. barack obama increased its share of votes among hispanics. that is a statement more about the republican party than the democratic party. >> that is not two waves. one was out of the democratic convention. that was a surge for the democrats. the second was a chance for the challenger to put himself on the stage. i think people were talking about romney's momentum. he got back in the race. he got stuck at a point where he could not go any further. >> let's go to this part of the room. let's go here. >> u.s. news and world report. it seems the coalition was unable biunique elements of this election. he have the bain background. how will they try to recreate the coalition? >> great question. a year ago,

"washington journal" at 7:00 eastern on c-span. tomorrow, we will talk about the congressional races and it to election day with representatives from texas, kansas, and virginia. our coverage begins at 9:00 a.m. eastern on c-span2. >> the same course we have been and will not lead to a better destination. it means $20 killian of debt. crippling unemployment. stagnant take-home pay. depressed home values. a devastated military and unless we change course, we may be looking at another recession. the question comes down to this, the want more of the same or do you want real change? >> we know what changed looks like and what governor romney is selling is not it. giving more power to the banks is not change. another five trillion dollar tax cut to

comment is, is it not possible that the house could pick romney and the senate could make obama the president? >> if the vote for president went to the house of representatives, we have presumed the majority of delegations the republican would vote for mitt romney. the senate would pick the vice- president, but they would have to select among the candidates with the most electoral votes for vice president. i could be wrong, but i do not think the senate would vote for obama. i do not think he would accept it either. >> a question on twitter. did the founding fathers believed that both people were not informed enough to become president? guest: one of the reasons they decided to go with the electorate, and they envision the people as learned citizens, well respected in their community, but i think they felt the average voter probably was not sophisticated enough to be entrusted with voting directly for president. host: what will you be watching for tonight? guest: i will be watching for a lot of these swing states and battleground states, some of these places with early poll clos
made. that was you should recruit romney and mccain. negotiate a deal with the chamber of commerce? if i were them, i would get it out of the way. and then you can set of economic issue and you have a much greater challenge. the president knows how he will raise income and create jobs. that's the first thing to deliver on. >> let's not underestimate the challenge the president faces. the election yesterday was 50- 48. the president managed to get less than 40% support from the largest group. he leads a very divided country and he helped make the divide by the way he ran the campaign. it is incumbent on this president to reach out, to show ogling is to expand his coalition, to be flexible with some of his policy options, and only he can do. . no one else other than this president can get beyond this incredible divisiveness. >> as of right now, his margin of victory is the smallest ever for it successfully reelected president as a share of the popular rovote. >> that won't remain. >> but he is the first president since andrew jackson to be reelected with a smaller share of the popula

"romney is president." and what is next for the republicans? another piece from "the weekly standard." back to your calls. larry is on the democrats' line from ohio. caller: good morning. i think the grover norquist rule should be abandoned. we are americans. we all need to work together. republicans, democrats, and independents, this is our country. it was founded in a manner that we all live and work together. the pledge that they took on was a negative. it was not what we as the people of the united states voted for these people to do. it was something they adopted to do. it took the pledge to make president obama a1-term president. that is not something that we did. we just sent a message that was not what we wanted. this country needs to turn it around and work together. president obama and john boehner need to work out a deal. the house of representatives needs to work with a. we need to quit fighting wars on a credit card. lyndon baines johnson installed a surcharge tax to pay for the
to washington and being a republican. >> the romney proposal on the individual development accounts got a lot of praise. are there areas where you could see the two parties working together? >> surem, on job training but it is not just spend more money like the jobs bill the president obama wanted which was $8 billion when he was already spending $23 billion on a program that was scattered throughout the government. there needs to be necessary reform to improve job training so that people who are unemployed can get irrelevant training and when they graduate, they can get real jobs. i actually agree -- i think divided government is an excellent opportunity to tackle the really important issues in our country. the largest issues we have are the spending. we will lose our rating once again as a nation because of our irresponsible deficit spending. if the two parties can get together because government is divided and tackle the whole issue about entitlements spending, we would be contributing a great deal to our country. >> the president expressed openness to reductions in spending with talks wit
